DU allows users to connect internet devices and peripherals to the network using the device's MAC address. A MAC address is a unique identifying number assigned to a device's wired or wireless networking card, and is unique to each device. On the DU network, these devices are associated with your user account, allowing you to easily share information between all of your devices. Please note that these instructions only apply to internet devices such as game consoles, set top boxes, and wireless printers. These instructions do not apply to personal computer, smartphones, or tablets.
